Staying with our son & daughter-in-law in Saint Cloud, Florida I was eager to head down Canoe Creek Road looking for wildlife. As dawn broke Friday morning Chad & I headed in the direction of Joe Overstreet Landing ready for some quality guy time. We had barely passed the city limits when I had to slow the car for a herd of deer that was undecided about crossing the roadway.
Before reaching our destination I spotted a flock of Wood Storks feeding in a small roadside wetland. Swinging the car around we grabbed the camera gear and ambled into position. Our arrival coincided with that of a Great Egret.
The gimbal tripod head allowed me to follow the bird as it came in for a landing
The little wetland had much more to offer than I suspected. I'll be sharing more in the coming days.
